When : Wednesday November 7th at 11 AM PST
Hey GNET : I want to announce a very special AMA for next Wednesday, November 7th, at 11 AM PST with none other than ganja guru Todd McCormick. I spoke with @todd.mccormick yesterday and he very generously agreed to share his time and wisdom with all of us at Growers Network!
For those of you who don’t know about Todd, please allow me to share some of his story: Todd is a ten time cancer survivor who attributes his beating cancer to cannabis. As such, Todd has been a lifelong advocate for cannabis legalization. In the mid-1990’s, Todd worked tirelessly alongside other cannabis icons Denis Peron and Dr. Tod Mikuriya to draft the very first medical cannabis legislation ever passed in America: California’s Prop. 215. Were it not for the efforts of mavericks such as these, we may not have a cannabis industry. Both Dr. Mikuriya and Denis Peron have since died, so we are lucky to be able to have an opportunity like this. These trailblazers paved the way for all pf us!
In 2000, Todd was sentenced to 5 years in prison after he was convicted for intent to distribute after police confiscated over 4,000 plants in his Bel Air mansion. For those of you familiar with the treating cancer patients with cannabis, once we start the treatment, it becomes a lifelong maintenance medication. Essentially a five year prison sentence with no cannabis represents what can amount to a death sentence to a cancer patient. Still, Todd beat the odds.
Tod is the author of How To Grow Medical Marijuana and Co-Produced the movie_The Union: The Business Behind Getting High_. Todd wrote the forward for Jack Herer’s classic book The Emperor Wears No Clothes. In 2012, Todd was awarded a Cannabis Culture Award.
We are very lucky to be able to host this special AMA. Please be sure to tune in and take part! Here’s your opportunity to interact live with a living legend!
